Windows 7: Lagging and stuttering while playing games and watching videos.

Lagging and stuttering while playing games and watching videos.

Sorry about the title, I don't know what to say.

When playing any game or watching any video (on hard drive, dvd or streaming) or playing any game (2d simple, 3d intensive) my computer gets lag spikes and stutters, the sound kind of freezes every time it pauses.

My PC has never had this problem before, it started a couple of days ago.

My graphics card drivers are up to date and I have no idea what to do.

Thanks.

I have tried starting with no background applications and it doesn't change anything.

Yeah! I had such experiences. I would gently restart the system to avoid that.
Haven't figured out what it is. But the problem got eradicated itself without any repairs for me.
